Every time i visit a website which supports unity webapp integration, a pop up dialog box out of the 'i' in the address bar appears which gets in my way and distracts me from what I am doing. I do not wish to click the always ignore drop down for every supported webpage, so is there a way to disable this notification box entirely (or even just uninstall webapp integration)?

Open Firefox>Preference. In the "General" tab you see "prompt integration options for any website". Uncheck it and you're done.

This doesn't exist any more in Firefox 38. I've tried NorTicUs dconf fix to see if that will do the job. – Scaine May 21 '15 at 8:04

From this site - How do you disable these annoying popups in firefox. Webapps - I saw you can remove WebApps integration in Firefox by going to Edit > Preferences > Desktop Integration > Untick "Prompt integration options for any website".

Or you can do it in Ubuntu preferences: "Alternatively (and for power users!), settings can be tweaked over at dconf > com > canonical > unity > webapps."
